I was never one for pro-wrestling. I have to admit that I have never found any entertainment in it. But I have heard of Kane. Mostly because he is an out of the closet libertarian. He writes regularly for The Daily Caller.

Now the former WWE champion might just “primary” Lamar Alexander in Tennessee. Given how wishy-washy Alexander is I am going to come out and say that I think Kane could win.  I give him a 2 in 5 shot.

Given Kane’s recent reading we can only hope he finds his way to Capitol Hill.

Jacobs says he’s always been interested in politics, but it wasn’t until around 2004 that he began reading economists of the libertarian “Austrian school” such as Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises and Murray Rothbard. He calls Henry Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson “one of the best books anyone can read,” and also cites von Mises’ Human Action and Rothbard’s Man, Economy, and State as personal favorites. And after listening to Jacobs talk for a while, it becomes apparent that, somewhere along the way, this leather mask-wearing pro-wrestler, who is famous for performing something called a “chokeslam” on his opponents, became a full-blown libertarian nerd.
